SUMMER REGISTRATION - Enrolling All Students!

Summer is a wonderful time for dancers to grow! Current and new students alike can try different dance styles and further progress their technique in our Summer Session! We offer a variety of Intensives, Dance Camps, and Workshops for students old and new and across all levels.

Summer FAQs

Intensives, Dance Camps & Workshops are similar in that a student will attend (3 to 5) days in a row for (3 to 5) hours per day. They are designed to pack in a lot over the days a student attends and we regularly see accelerated growth in the short period of days.

They differ as Intensives are designed for dancers (ages 6+) with at least some experience, while Dance Camps are designed for younger dancers (ages 3 – 7). Workshops are designed with specific areas of focus on a dance style or technique. Students in Workshops typically work on a piece or several pieces with a mini performance on the last day.

Regular dance classes will be held on Saturdays during the Summer Session. With enough interest, classes during the evening on set days during the week may be added. The Saturday class schedule is in the works and will be posted in April.

Our former session is less formal than during the school year. Athletic / dance attire is required for all camps, workshops and classes, but there is not a formal uniform. Our ballet intensives do require students to wear leotards, tights and ballet shoes, but there is no color or style requirement. Proper dance footwear is required for every class, camp and workshop (e.g. ballet shoes, jazz shoes, non-marking sneakers etc.) Please CONTACT US for further detailed information.

Make-ups are not offered during the Summer Session. Camps, Workshops and Intensives are paid for in advance and have specific curriculum designed for each day. Our Open Classes are offered via a drop-in basis, and thus can be canceled at no charge up to 48 hours in advance of the start of the class.
